farewell, little Robin

Posted in birds, Milan, new, robin redbreast by martalorenza on March 22, 2011

It was a really silent dawn this morning, without Robin, my robin readbreast friend (he came back to my garden on November 4th and sang every morning for almost 5 months, how wonderful!).

For the last two days he’d been singing at full volume, but didn’t come over to ask for pine nuts. Since February he sang all day long, at the beginning softly, his beak closed, from the oleander, then out loud from the beech tree. I missed you this morning, Robin, my little friend!

Jesus said God takes care of sparrows, which are sold for a penny, I really hope He will keep your journey towards the mountains safe from nets and eagles (where are you going? Dad says to a real wood to eat pine nuts from pine cones at last, rather than from plastic bags).

May you always find little spiders and fat worms when you hop among the bushes.

Today as I missed you and was thinking of you, not only did I give pine nuts to Black and peanuts to the tits, but also some bread to the pigeons. They couldn’t believe it! They worship me already!

Soon the oleander will bloom to make me forget how much better it is when colors can also fly and look out for me! But this sad silence makes it clearer how wrong this attack in Libya is. May the Lord have mercy on us and forgive us all.
